The mothers are sitting worried in front of the television and listen to the constant news reports, while the kids, with no one to supervise them, return to their camp in the wild. To their surprise, they discover two soldiers who deserted from their units, using their camp as a hideout. The children try to regain control over their stolen territory, but the soldiers hold their grounds. Ruthless struggle develops between the groups, and the soldiers, who sought refuge from the war outside, find themselves in another war, which turns out to be as dangerous and bloody.

Now these children are covered with two soldiers’ blood as their own private war rages in the woods while a “real” war rages in the outside world.
